TEACHING FOR TOMORROW

Humanistic Values and 21st Century Challenges

A two-day conference for English language teachers, which takes place in Bratislava on 23rd and 24th February, 2024.

VENUE: Faculty of Chemical and Food Technology STU, Radlinského 9, Bratislava, Slovakia

A conference for English teachers

HLT – Humanism in Language Teaching, is what we believe in when it comes to teaching languages. At the HLT.digital conference, we will present HLT practitioners who have introduced humanistic approaches to the classroom and helped to reshape the learning process with the student at the centre.

The concept of “human” is evolving beyond individuals to all living things, communities, and nature. Our planet is facing unprecedented environmental challenges, with globalization now extending far beyond travel and cultural exchange to encompass issues like climate change and migration. The world’s problems are global and we need a common language to find solutions, to help to protect what is alive.

As educators, what role do we play in navigating these challenges? What impact can we, as teachers, have on the broader narrative? Can schools serve as catalysts for positive change?

These are the critical questions we aim to explore and discuss at our conference in February. We warmly invite you to join us in this dialogue, as we investigate how the teaching of languages can contribute to shaping a brighter and more sustainable future for all.
